3 Onshore, Nearshore, Offshore: Unsure? June Poland: The Destination for Modern Business Services The range of functions that are being near/off-shored to CEE is growing in complexity at a faster pace than in Asia. Poland has a maturing outsourcing market and is a long-term investment destination in which to settle, expand and evolve one s business. 2 Business Environment Poland is one of the most rapidly growing markets in Europe. A high level of investment attractiveness and a declining complexity of doing business. 3 Labour Market A growing number of experienced employees and skilled graduates, a wide diversity of foreign language knowledge, attractive labour costs, significant mobility and low attrition rates. Cost arbitrage is no longer given the highest weighting in the decision-making hierarchy. 4 Grants & Incentives Investors from the business services sector in Poland can benefit from different types of state aid, as well as incentives from EU funds and EU R&D programs via their Polish registered entities. 5 Connectivity Poland, with its 12 international airports, is well connected to all major cities in Europe within two to three hours flying time. Poland is also located in a favourable time zone for global communications. 6 Real Estate Market Poland s office market is developing fast; it offers a wide range of office locations and high quality office space that meets the needs of the modern business services sector.
4 Onshore, Nearshore, Offshore: Unsure? June Poland: The Destination for Modern Business Services Sector trends Since 2009, CEE as a whole has won proportionately many more Shared Service Centres investments than Asia. This is part of a recent phenomenon of corporations opting to nearshore (in CEE) as opposed to far-shoring (in Asia). It also hints at a related phenomenon whereby companies are investing closer to home and using these facilities for more complex business processes, such as HR, treasury, real estate, etc. 1 The range of functions that are being near/off-shored to CEE is growing in complexity at a faster pace than in Asia: R&D, software development, HR, more complex finance and accounting processes, etc. This reflects the growing maturity and adaptability of CEE as a labour market and its business climate. Cost arbitrage, while still an important consideration, is no longer given the highest weighting in the decision-marking hierarchy. Companies looking still for aggressive cost arbitrage opportunities are left with two options: far-shoring to Asia or looking at third tier locations where they would have to pioneer the labour and real estate market, often with a limited number of real estate options in which to house operations. The rise of mid-cap firms: mid-cap companies are globalizing their footprints through targeted small scale investments. This means that locations which have been underinvested in by multinational companies are being targeted by mid-caps. Poland Poland has a maturing market. Companies view Poland as a long-term investment destination in which to settle, expand and evolve their businesses. They do not simply value Poland as a cost attractive location. Many, if not most, shared service centres are now managed entirely by native Poles, while employees thereof are ambitious and want to develop and grow within the organisation. Employment in the modern business services sector 2 in Poland has grown in recent years by 20% per annum and is expected to continue at the same growth level in 2013, according to ABSL. As of the middle of 2013, Poland s 400+ business centres employed more than 110,000 people and constituted approximately 40% of the employment in the modern business services sector in CEE. That number is expected to reach 115,000 to 120,000 by the end of New investments, as well as re-investment in existing centres, will help promote that growth. This is proof of the quality of the services delivered by those centres and investors confidence in Poland. The number of cities now presenting themselves as attractive investment locations for the modern business service sector in Poland has grown significantly. Currently, cities put a great deal of effort into ensuring that investments will bring sufficient benefits which justify further investments. Scale and size of operations. In recent years, the level of headcount which ensures profitability and manageability for a project was around 200 new job places. At present, projects envisaging 80 to 90 new jobs are not uncommon. There will be a refocusing on increasingly complex services. Numerous fresh graduates in a chosen location are no longer a prerequisite for this kind of investment. The availability of skilled and experienced professionals who have managed to gather expertise as a result of having been active in their profession for a good few years is becoming important. Ranking Poland Poland has 3.4% of all global outsourcing/offshoring jobs, ranking 1st in CEE, 2nd in Europe (all) and 6th globally. 4 Poland is 3rd in a ranking of destinations for global service centres by the Hackett Group. Together with China and India, Poland was indicated as one of the best places for Business Services investment projects. In the latest report, the company predicts that there will be even more investments from the sector coming to Poland. Poland was the only CEE country to be described as a mature market, together with Brazil, China and India, in the latest report from the Everest Group. Poland was ranked by global managers as the world s 13 th best host economy for FDI. The significant investment attractiveness of Poland has been reflected by the UNCTAD s World Investment Prospects Survey for Source: fdi Markets from the Financial Times, ; FDI inflow of greenfield projects for Shared Services, Technical Support and Customer Contact. 2 Companies with foreign capital. 3 ABSL: Association of Business Service Leaders. 4 Source: fdi Markets from the Financial Times, ; FDI inflow of greenfield projects for Shared Services, Technical Support and Customer Contact.
5 Onshore, Nearshore, Offshore: Unsure? June Business Environment Poland, with its population of 38 million people, is one of the most rapidly growing markets in Europe and enjoys a stable political climate. A little over 20 years, Poland now stands on the brink of joining the 20 largest economies in the world. Highly attractive for investments. Poland has become one of the most vibrant and thriving business locations in Europe. FDI has been critical to Poland s economic development since the early 1990s. FDI inflow has been a key driving force behind the country s economic restructuring and modernization. Poland s attractiveness for FDI remains strong, despite growing competition from other emerging countries. Poland s significant attractiveness for investment has been reflected in the most recent UNCTAD World Investment Prospects Survey, the report for , where Poland was ranked by global managers as the world s 13th best host economy for FDI. Innovation is another reason for Poland s success. Poland became a trusted partner for foreign businesses, especially due to the creativity in working out new solutions and work attitude. As a result, more complex and advanced businesses were attracted to Poland, underpinned by the availability of a skilled labour force. The strong integration of the modern services sector in Poland and the embedded know-how, especially with regard to advanced and complex services, are key for further expansion of this sector in Poland. A wide range of supporting services are emerging or expanding, including for instance, business continuity centres and datacentres, which can strengthen the sector during its growth. Substantial efforts are underway to improve the country s business environment. Poland was the top performer according to Doing Business 2013, moving up 19 places. In the National Reform Programmes (NRP), the Polish government will focus on action aimed at catching-up and building new competitive advantages in three priority areas: (1) infrastructure for sustainable growth; (2) innovation for smart growth; and (3) activity for inclusive growth. Transparency Index. According to the latest Global Jones Lang LaSalle Real Estate Transparency Index, Poland is considered to be a transparent market and is ranked 19th globally. This indicates that Poland has transparency levels comparable to Western Europe and offers a business friendly environment. "We are creating a dual office arrangement between Krakow and Euroclear Bank's headquarters in Belgium for business continuity purposes. We selected Krakow primarily because of the large pool of well-educated university graduates with European language skills and because we are able to use a European regulatory passport to set up our branch in Poland." Frédéric Dirickx Deputy CEO Operations Director Euroclear Bank SA/NV Polish branch Support. Companies which are considering starting operations in Poland can expect support and assistance from institutions such as the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency (PAIiIZ), local governmental agencies focusing on particular parts of the country, and a number of international advisory companies. Moreover, as Poland is an established modern business services location, the Association of Business Services Leaders (ABSL) in Poland was founded in 2009 to support the dynamic growth of the business services sector in the country. Declining complexity of doing business: regulatory structures in Poland are fully harmonizing with EU norms. Reducing regulatory risk is good for business in the long term. In the short term, lots of change albeit positive change is tough to manage in terms of compliance. Tax regulation in particular is worth mentioning. That said, the landscape with regard to investment incentives in CEE could become more complex with the introduction of the EU financial framework for
6 Onshore, Nearshore, Offshore: Unsure? June Labour Market Growing number of experienced employees. The modern business service sector employs 110,000 employees (as of the middle of 2013), spread over more than 400 centres across Poland. This has resulted in a growing number of experienced employees within the sector: 31.4% of the 1,641 respondents in a recent Poland survey by Hays Poland indicated that they have more than five years of experience in the service centre environment. Growing number of skilled graduates. Poland offers a significant number of university graduates. According to the latest available statistics, in 2011 their number was over 492,600. This amount has been on the rise for several years and has gone up by 25% over the last five years. The number of graduates with regard to the key courses of study from the perspective of the modern business services sector also looks promising. In 2011, about 121,700 people graduated with degrees in business and administration, 28,110 with degrees in engineering and more 15,000 with degrees in computer science. Among the most rapidly growing areas was engineering: the number of engineering graduates was up by almost 25% as compared to Wide diversity of foreign language knowledge (>30). As far as foreign languages are concerned, Polish students provide a very good talent pool, as shown by the graph below. Additionally, there are numerous linguistic courses on offer, including niche languages such as Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Hindi and Chinese. Language Knowledge among Polish Students 100% 80% 60% 40% 20% 0% English German Russian French Spanish Source: Study of Human Capital in Poland, 2010 Italian When discussing availability of skills, one must not forget about employees who already work in the modern business services sector: they are an important experienced talent pool. A survey carried out by ABSL showed that in the service centres in Poland 34 languages are used. 96% of the centres use English and 86% use German. Also, 10% of the companies that took part in the survey use 20 or more languages. The employer s contributions in Poland are among the lowest in Central Eastern Europe. The gross salary of an employee is only a part of the labour costs incurred by the employer. As well as salary, the employer has to pay contributions for social insurance (including contributions for retirement, disability and accident insurance) and to the Labour Fund and the Guaranteed Employment Benefit Fund.

7 Onshore, Nearshore, Offshore: Unsure? June Great mobility. Another of the main characteristics of the modern business services sector employees is mobility. In the Hays survey more than half of respondents (57.7%) said they had moved to another city for a job, while 84.6% would move if the right opportunity arises. We can also observe a trend where less work experience is directly correlated to a willingness to relocate. Low attrition rate. Poland also has a low attrition rate: the average is 15%. However, the rate can be as low as 5% for centres with more advanced processes which are more attractive for employees, hence causing them not to switch jobs so often.

8 Onshore, Nearshore, Offshore: Unsure? June Grants & Incentives Investment incentives available to investors 5 have to be granted in accordance with the regulations on state aid for business entities. It is possible to combine various forms of state aid; however the total amount of tax exemptions or financial grants provided to an investor cannot exceed the maximum permissible amount of regional state aid (which is calculated by multiplying the qualifying costs by the maximum aid intensity in the region). Qualifying costs could be: costs of investment outlays (aid for an initial investment) or the two-year labour costs of newly hired employees (aid for job creation), depending on which of those is higher. Regional aid for an initial investment may be granted along with aid for job creation, provided that the overall amount of aid does not exceed the maximum permissible amount of aid. Map of regional aid intensity (2013) CIT exemption CIT exemptions are available for investors operating within SEZs based on a permit to run their business issued by the given SEZ s authorities. The value of tax holidays can amount to the limit for the aid available for a given investment project. The basic condition for tax exemptions in SEZs is that the investor has to commit to a new investment of at least EUR 100,000 and obtain a permit to conduct business activity in the SEZ issued by management board of the given SEZ. In order to receive an SEZ permit, an investor may either enter an existing SEZ or apply for an SEZ extension and apply for the SEZ permit afterwards. The board of SEZ applies to the Ministry of Economy for obtaining permission to establish the zone. SEZ permits are valid until the end of 2020: according to the currently binding regulations, that is the date on which SEZs will cease to exist. At present, however, legislative work is underway in order to extend the existence of SEZs beyond that date i.e. until at least Government Grant Warsaw Maximum support level: 50 % 40 % 30 % Investors from the business services sector in Poland can benefit from different types of state aid, including, inter alia, corporate income tax (CIT) exemption in the Special Economic Zones (SEZ) and governmental cash grants. Also available are incentives from EU funds and EU R&D programs for Polish registered entities (including the Polish arms of foreign investors) such as: Innotech Intech R&D project support; Corporate Income Tax relief for the acquisition of new technology; Research and Development Centre (RDC); the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union. A new allocation framework for EU funds for is currently under discussion between the EU and its member states and will be announced by the end of This might potentially change the incentive landscape in Europe. 5 Aid for an initial investment or the creation of new jobs related to an initial investment. State aid is granted to and designated for investments which are considered crucial to the Polish economy, including investments in the priority sectors, one of which is modern services (i.e. the business service sector, IT, etc). Such subsidy is granted on the basis of an agreement signed between the given investor and the Minister of Economy. The Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency is the operator of this form of public aid. Projects from the business services sector which involve the creation of at least 250 new jobs or investment expenditure amounting to PLN 2 million may apply for job creation grants. In the case of R&D projects, 6 the investor is required to create a minimum of 35 new jobs for workers with higher education and to spend a minimum of PLN 3 million in expenditures. The maximum amount of support varies from PLN 3,200 to PLN15,600 per job created. The amount of money granted depends on four factors: the percentage of employees with higher education; location; processes; and other factors (such as the brand of the company, co-operation with universities etc). The flexibility in the number of jobs created is a maximum of 10%. If the company commits to 250 new jobs, the flexibility is 0%. 6 Engineering and R&D centres, software development, Knowledge Process Outsourcing centres, e.g. knowledge management, high-risk decision-making, highly specialized IT and financial processes characterized by extensive know-how on the service provider side, R&D work in: production and product engineering, environmental engineering, biotechnology, pharmacy, electronics, mechanics, mechatronics, chemistry, energetics, aviation, etc.

HP GBC provides services for international companies from different sectors in both Europe and the USA. HP GBC Wrocław also supports administrative processes for other HP units in the areas of finance, accounting, payroll, marketing, sales and supply chain management. Additionally, the unit continues to expand its portfolio to include advanced financial, accounting, marketing, and business analysis services. These also include Knowledge Process Outsourcing KPO. The decision to locate the centre in Wrocław was made by the global HP management board after a thorough analyses of both Poland s and Wrocław s assets. Factors taken into account included access to a highly qualified workforce with foreign language competences, the proximity of the organization s European clients, development potential, and the authorities' willingness to cooperate with international investors. The success of Hewlett-Packard s Wrocław services unit one of the most advanced business services centers in Europe as well as the great potential of Polish specialists were the main reasons why the organization decided to extend the scope of the operations and processes it handled in Poland. Moreover, these assets had a favourable impact on the decision to open the second HP centre in Poland, this time in Łódź. This investment has further strengthened Poland s position as the leading HP business services destination in the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa).

10 Onshore, Nearshore, Offshore: Unsure? June Real Estate Market The Polish office market is developing quickly, with the 1 million m² of space currently under construction across Poland showing that this is one of the most dynamic markets in Europe. Poland s modern office stock grew by 10% over the year, reaching a total of 6.4 million m² in Q1 2013, 7 which makes it the largest office market in Central and Eastern Europe. Poland offers a wide range of office locations. No other country in Central and Eastern Europe is able to offer so many potential locations to the modern business service sector and each of those has its own characteristics and features. The large number of locations is also key for companies that want to expand or are looking to diversify. Established office markets and the largest new locations are both analysed in this section. 8 High quality of office space. Both international and domestic developers are well aware of the specific space requirements of modern business services sector tenants. Most office buildings meet A-Class standards (raised floors, efficient air conditioning and ventilation systems, BMS, fibre cable connectivity, possibility to freely choose a telecomms operator, etc) and have flexible layouts and effective floorplans so that expansion or internal rearrangement can be done efficiently. Availability of office space: wide choice of options. Companies which are looking to occupy office space should take into account the immediately vacant space in existing buildings as well as available space in buildings under construction in order to have a full picture of the leasing market. The high level of construction activity indicates that more quality space will come onto the market in the short to medium term. The strong developers activity in Warsaw has resulted in a wide choice of available space, especially in non-central locations, which are the main locations for the modern business services sector in the city. There is no common picture for the established Polish regional office markets, as is shown on the graph. Kraków, for instance, currently has a low level of immediate vacant space but a relatively high level of construction activity. The picture is very different in Szczecin, a smaller office market where the high level of immediate available space has put a hold on new construction. In new locations office supply is more limited, especially when looking for areas larger than 1,000 m². Rents. Headline rents for prime quality buildings in established office markets in Poland range between EUR 11 and EUR 16 per m² per month. In new or emerging markets, rents are even more attractive, ranging between EUR 8 and EUR 11 per m² per month. In general, rents are relatively stable but the high level of construction activity may result in more tenant attractive conditions in certain markets.
